Seventeen Define & Conquer Contour Kit

20150211-123757-45477515.jpg

I’ve been a bit naughty in Boots again! Shhh!
So I’m a complete nube at contouring but have always wanted to try it, so what better than to use a kit designed for it?
I chose this Define & Conquer kit in the shade Fair!
Comes in a box and the compact itself is sturdy and has a mirror! Nothing too exhilarating!
It also comes with a mini how to guide! Very good for contour idiots like me!

Swiping my brush through the powder I was pleasantly surprised to see it had a very fine, soft texture and loaded onto the brush well! The only downside is that you waste lots of powder here in excess!
Even though I tapped excess off the brush I still managed to use too much but I think it might be me and mine non practiced hands at fault here!
I make the moon look like it’s got a good tan, I’m so pale! But this isn’t a bad match if I go lightly on the darker shade!
For £5.99 it’s not a bad purchase!
Available in your local Boots store!

Emma Hardie Amazing Face Moisturiser

20150207-211903-76743904.jpg

Happy Valentines Day lovely people!

The Emma Hardie Amazing Face Natural Lift & Sculpt Hydrating & Firming Moisturiser contains essential oils such as lavender, geranium, and peppermint! This makes it smell amazing and makes it feel like it’s doing something!

It has a cold butter like feel when scooping out of the pot but it melts on contact with the skin and sinks in almost immediately! It definitely moisturises well but it’s too much for my skin making it feel sensitive and a wee bit red after using it! It was ok at first but by day three I was looking like I was blushing badly!
This makes me sad because I have fallen in love with the smell and the fact that it does a good job but alas those divine oils are too much for moi! 😦

Herbal Essences Clearly Naked Dry Shampoo

20150207-153828-56308850.jpg

The other morn I ran clean out of my usual favourite dry shampoo called Girlz Only. It works like a dream, smells divine and is only £1.50 from Tesco!
Well I’m too lazy to go all the way to Tesco just for this so I nipped into Superdrug to see what I could see!
I purchased this Herbal Essences Clearly Naked dry shampoo because it wasn’t Bastiste (Batiste and my hair aren’t friends!) and it was cheap.
Currently on offer for £1.47!
I thought it would tide me over till I see another Tesco trip on the horizon.

Well I do think it may have converted me to it’s side. It smells of citrus and mint and doesn’t chalk my hair up making me look like Gandalf.
As soon as I give it a quick rub with my hands it’s practically invisible and once I’ve brushed it you would never know!
It’s also free from nasties like parabens!
It refreshes my hair extremely well which is all I ask!
Top drawer product in mine eyes! Get one here!

Chocolate Chip Cookies!

I’m determined to find the best chocolate chip cookie recipe out there!
This is the first recipe that caught my eye, it’s from the BBC Good Food website and you can check it out here!

So to the cookies:

They came out like mounds rather than a traditional biscuit shape, but hey! A biscuit is a biscuit!
These were darn nice, with a soft centre and slightly crunchy edges!
I wouldn’t call this the ultimate chocolate chip cookie and shall continue my search but for now I shall munch down these chocolate chip mounds with delight!
